Chanterelles Printanier

Chanterelles Printanier
Printanier is French for "made or dressed with diced Spring vegetables". Bring a little Spring to your table when fresh Chanterelles are available. This easy recipe is truly refreshing and pairs well with just about any main course.

1 pound haricots verts (thin French green beans)
1 1/2 cups red pearl onions
3/4 pound fingerling potatoes, sliced very thin
1/2 pound fresh Chanterelle mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed with tough stems discarded
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup shelled fresh peas (about 1 1/4 pound in the pods)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper



Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Nearby, have a large bowl of ice water ready.

Trim the haricots verts into 3-inch pieces and blanch them in boiling water for about 1 ½ to 2 minutes.

Transfer the beans with a slotted spoon to the ice water to immediately stop the cooking process. Drain them in a colander.

In the same boiling water, cook the onions for about 5 minutes and transfer to a colander.

Peel and halve the onions and transfer them to a bowl.

The vegetables may be prepared a day ahead of time up until this point. Make sure they are cooled completely, and chilled in a sealable plastic bag.


Cut the chanterelles in half or quarters, if they are large. In a heavy skillet, heat the unsalted butter over moderate heat until the foam subsides. Cook the mushrooms with salt to taste, stirring occasionally, for about 2 or 3 minutes, or until they are tender.

Add the peas and cook another 2 minutes, or until they are a bright green.

Add the beans, onions, and potatoes, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are just heated through.

Stir in the chives and season with salt and pepper.
